You don't have a spare 20 hours to Insta-shop for the future? Well, luckily you know someone whose job it is to get through the lot and find what's most noteworthy: us.

We've picked out the 20 designers whose lookbooks stood out among the pack; learn their names, and start making some space in your closet.
